A specialist fully glazed automatic door from Gilgen Door Systems was recently chosen to create the right impression for Royal Standard Place, a prestigious office block in central Nottingham. Work has recently completed on a £2m refurbishment of the building which included infilling a three storey lightwell, new curtain walling and construction of a new entrance façade.
The Gilgen SLX- PSF sliding door was chosen by leading building envelope contractors HKL Specialists because its clean and contemporary appearance matched perfectly with the glazed façade of the renovated building. The full-glass design of the door, without visible door leaf profiles, helps create a visually appealing, clear view entrance with improved access for visitors and staff.
Working with HKL and main contractors Rotunda Construction, Gilgen Door Systems installed the door within a steel ‘goalpost’ frame within a structural opening of 4.1m. The two sliding door leafs have a clear opening width of 1.8m to guarantee ease of access and are positioned, along with the side screens, in direct line with the structural glass installed above the door ensuring a seamless appearance.
The technologically advanced SLX drive system is cleverly concealed within an aluminium trim to optimise the clean lines of the entrance and comes with integral safety measures including auto-stop/ reverse and emergency operating mode. The doors are activated through an access control panel on the outside with remote release and by infrared sensors on the inside which trigger the doors automatically as pedestrians leave the building.
Ryan Damms of HKL said: "We are aware of the quality of the Gilgen product from previous projects, however, we are really pleased that the specification of this door and advice we received enabled us to fully deliver the clients design brief”.
